Dakota is a young infielder who is a tough out at the plate. Offensively, he has a great approach, loads well and can spray the ball to all fields. Better rhythm and timing will help him improve as a hitter and allow him to increase his power and effectiveness. In the infield, at 2B, Dakota has very good body control, footwork and he works around the bag well. He needs to focus on fielding the ball out in front and speeding up his exchange.
